The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Caretaker/ Extra-Ordinary National Convention Organizing Committee, Mai Mala Buni, has vowed to sanction members who sabotage the upcoming registration/revalidation exercise of membership.

While inaugurating the National Committee for Membership/Revalidation exercise of the party at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja, on Wednesday, Buni issued the sanction notice.

He said, “Let me make it abundantly clear that the party would not condone any act of sabotage of denying anyone or group of persons from registering. The party would deal decisively with anyone or group who attempted hijacking the exercise.”

“Everyone must be allowed and given the chance to register. The party has adequate back up materials to ensure a successful exercise and no one is disenfranchised.”

“As you are aware, the party has not had the opportunity of renewing its membership register since the initial registration exercise of 2014. The party had in the last seven years received millions of politicians who left other political parties and joined the APC but were not registered.”

“Similarly millions of youths who attained the age of 18 years and above have joined the party within this period could not be registered.  Again, others who had left the party still have their names in the register.”

“The registration and revalidation exercise therefore provide the opportunity for both new and old members to register and update their membership in the party, and for the party to expunge names of those who had left so as to have a clean and up to date membership register.”

The chairman of the eleven-man body, who is also the Governor of the State of Niger, Sani Bello, told reporters shortly after the inauguration of the committee that the committee will ensure justice and equity in the execution of its duties.

In response to a question on how the committee intended to deal with the exercise in crisis ridden states, Bello said, “We have isolated cases of communication gap but overall, the party is stable in all the states.”

“Then for states that don’t have APC governors they’re bound to have some little issues because of different stakeholders and some of these stakeholders sometimes tend to disagree on certain things.

“Overall, I can assure you that most of the states are stable and hopefully with the little few that have issues we are making efforts to see how we can resolve their crisis.”
